    Pros

    Hands-on experience, knowledgeable faculty, cutting-edge research, unlimited resources, great location, flexible hours (depending on your faculty advisor), energetic students and near-limitless opportunities

    Cons

    unfortunately the position is low pay and no room for negotiation. Often, you will find yourself working long hours and if you're not self-motivated, this can be a daunting task.

    Advice to Management

    The management is very unique to the faculty advisor. Some advisors don't track your hours, as longs as the work is completed, others will require hours. Advice for the student/employee: find the advisor that is most compatible for your life style.

    There was no interview process, just the normal admissions that one would have to complete and be qualified for. For graduate school it is better to know a professor and be able to work in the lab.

On a clear day, UCLA. That's an old joke, but the University of California, Los Angeles certainly qualifies as "old school," having been founded in 1919.
